Bernalillo County MDC provides unique way to give back this holiday season


Are you looking for a unique way to participate in the season of giving?

The Bernalillo County Metropolitan Detention Center can use your help with two initiatives.

1: Adopt a Pod.

You can “adopt a pod” by supporting inmate recreation programs through donations of plastic chess sets, racquetballs, dominoes, colored pencils without erasers, checkers and basketballs.

These items give inmates something to occupy their time during the day, leading to a safer and calmer facility for both inmates and staff.

2: MDC is collecting toys for its annual Holiday party for the children of inmates.

Children of inmates are treated to a holiday party where each will receive a present, a visit with Santa and holiday treats.

New, unwrapped toys can be dropped off to Chaplain Fletcher at MDC’s lobby every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
